30" is thirty seconds. Not enough light for your camera on the settings you have dialled in (for a hand held shot of the dog anyway).

The 5.6 is the aperture. The 2...1... ...1...2 is the exposure meter showing you how far over- or under-exposed the shot will be.

The manual should show all this and it will be much easier to go through it with the camera to hand seeing what all the major functions do. Leave everything else on auto for the moment.

Right, have just managed to find out how to adjust the iso,its set at 400 in the manual mode.but on the lcd screen it says 30" in the left top corner, also awb (auto whit balance i believe,in the middle top it says 5.6??? and middle there 2...1...... .......1......:2.... now this last one i see in the eyepeice display and its arrow pointing on +2 to the right hand side. also has the number 4 beside the green "shot ready" dot.
Make sense????
edit, i just took a pic of the dog to test, and the cam clicked as it took shot, then went dark and i couldnt see thru the eyepeice for about 20seconds until it clicked again....now im gettin scared

Gazzer, you need this link if you don't have a manual for your camera: 300d Manual Link, it can be a bit slow so stick with it.

Settings for shooting start at page 47.
It is essential that your camera is configured to use all it's potential. Section 1 on page 48 explains how to reconfigure the cameras settings. Set it to Large, 6.3mpix.

Sorry to keep banging on about this but it is vital you do this otherwise, with all the help and tinkering around in the world, your camera will only be looking at life through partly closed eyes.

Right ,thanks lads,looks like this thread is gonna be a winner
I have just looked at my camera and i think i used it in the basic setting on autofocus ,which i beleive sets the iso at 100.now i presume this was not adequate enough for the given light conditions which were poor, or quite dull.i have never used the creative modes yet so i guess this is where i reset the iso to the conditions on the day....i have these options

The stag was at Domaine de Boux, by the end of the week we were feeding him by hand, if you shook a box of cereal he would come charging up to the fence

Adding a bit more information would help to point out little changes that could have been made to improve the shot. No idea how to get the EXIF data on a Windows thing but if someone could pop it in the thread we could start getting the information with the pics.

If this is to be a critique thread it would really help if the photo was accompanied by a little more information. Camera, lens, ISO, aperture and shutter speed or full EXIF data if you can.
